Smiling face.
It shows that the person is happy, friendly, positive.
It is hard for unhappy people to smile. Therefore,
for obtaining a smiling face we have to learn
thinking positively.
When I am sad for my ignorance, I try to learn more.
That sadness will disappear when I find the source
of knowledge.
When I am sad for other children being deprived of
education, I try harder to do something for them. When I
have chance to educate a child, or reminding someone
else to do so, my sadness will turn into joy.
I also pray for guidance and protection,
so God will give me inspiration to overcome
unpleasant feelings.
Yes, I love and admire smiling faces.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Turn to God, supplicate humbly at His threshold, seeking assistance and confirmation, that God may rend asunder the veils that obscure your vision. Then will your eyes be filled with illumination, face to face you will behold the reality of God and your heart become completely purified from the dross of ignorance, reflecting the glories and bounties of the Kingdom.”

WHAT’S ABNORMAL TO YOU?

What’s abnormal to you?

Asked By: laceset34 (36-40, F) 25 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 18th, 2012 at 6:11PM

Most people think that walking by feet is normal,
so they consider as abnormal he who walks by the head.
Doing things according to tradition, habit, imitation…
is normal; doing by independent thinking, abnormal.
Immature people fear very much for being judged as abnormal,
so they dare not think, say and do things independently,
their community is like a herd of sheep.
Under a despotic regime, independent thinking is
terribly fearful. Those being labelled as abnormal
are detained in asylums or exiled to isolated dwellings.
The Internet has made a great contribution to
encouragement of independent thinking. All new thoughts,
new languages, new ways of doing things… are developing
up here at the speed of light. And mature people can
independently decide to adopt or to ignore them.
I am greatly thankful to the inventors of the Internet. I really
wonder how our world can change without it! Now, with
the Internet, all individuals can make independent investigation
of truth and practice it without fear of being judged
as abnormal!

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Again, there are those famed and accomplished men of learning, possessed of praiseworthy qualities and vast erudition, who lay hold on the strong handle of the fear of God and keep to the ways of salvation. In the mirror of their minds the forms of transcendent realities are reflected, and the lamp of their inner vision derives its light from the sun of universal knowledge. They are busy by night and by day with meticulous research into such sciences as are profitable to mankind, and they devote themselves to the training of students of capacity. It is certain that to their discerning taste, the proffered treasures of kings would not compare with a single drop of the waters of knowledge, and mountains of gold and silver could not outweigh the successful solution of a difficult problem.

BASIC EDUCATION PROGRAM IMPORTANT?

Is the implementation of k-12 Basic Education Program really important? why?

Asked By: gen2 (18-21, F) 1 hour ago

Posted by pukirahe Oct 18th, 2012 at 4:27AM

The whole system is outdated and collapsing.
Children of our days can finish high school
program at twelve and college at fifteen. After
that they are able to continue higher education by themselves.
Our program today are too heavy with useless data
and the whole knowledge is narrowly for the service of the nation
(while proper education must train our children for
serving efficiently and lovingly the whole human race.)
Times and again, I keep on calling makers of policies
and educators to do something urgently for this most
important matter. New problems of the wolrd cannot
be solved with solutions and knowledge of former centuries.
I know that this will surely be done when we fall into
deeper abysses. So, it is always wiser to solve
our problems before they become too late.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Behind our solar system there are unfathomable stellar systems and above those stellar systems are the remote aggregations of the milky way. Extend your vision beyond the fixed stars and again you shall behold many spheres of light. In brief, the creation of the Almighty is beyond the grasp of the human intellect. When this objective creation is unlimited and not subject to suspension, is not the subjective creation of His Majesty the Almighty limitless? When the reflection or physical creation is infinite, how is it possible to circumscribe the reality which is the basis of divine creation? The spiritual world is so much greater than the physical that in comparison with it the physical world is non-existent.”

Good Question? (5)

Posted by pukirahe Sep 30th, 2012 at 3:36AM

Lack of education – universally spiritual education.
With national systems of education, we are reaching
the present level of science, technology and social skills.
But, we are still suspecting, hating, narrow-minded.
In the name of self-defence, of security, of benefits,
we still allow ourselves to ignore the injuries we
may cause to people of other countries, and we still
waste huge sums on money on defence.
If the proper education can cause us to think like
a world citizen, we may easily save our world. Wasted
money in military efforts can be used to do all social good
and spiritual development for a brighter future.
The root of all evil is our wrong thinking. We will think
right when we are educated rightly. We will correct
ourself instead of blaming others as we are doing now.
Nobody is to be blamed: we are at this level because
our education is only that high. For radical change of the
world we need urgently an education to equip young people
with powers to live as world citizens.
Willing or not, we must try to make change. World problems
cannot be solved with national spirit.

Baha’u’llah says:

 “Let your vision be world-embracing, rather than confined to your own self. The Evil One is he that hindereth the rise and obstructeth the spiritual progress of the children of men.

It is incumbent upon every man, in this Day, to hold fast unto whatsoever will promote the interests, and exalt the station, of all nations and just governments. Through each and every one of the verses which the Pen of the Most High hath revealed, the doors of love and unity have been unlocked and flung open to the face of men. We have erewhile declared — and Our Word is the truth — : “Consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship.”  (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 94)

“6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”(King James Bible, Matthew)
Many people claim to be Chistians without reading the Bible, without paying attention to Christ’s counsels and much less to put them into practice.
Who have sought the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and how many people having seen the adding things.
Now, with all the Holy Books easily accessible on the Internet, I wish that believers of all religions to reread their Holy Books and to apply loyally to show the boundless love of God and cutting off all misunderstandings.
Why disputing vainlessly based on hearsays, ceremonies, prejudices to spoil the sacred names of Moses, Christ, Muhammad… Who brought mankind to the summit of civilization that all educated people can check and verify.
Let us all be guided and protected by the original Word of God.

SOMETHING TO SAY MORE OFTEN?

What is something you need to say more often?

Asked By: azaliea 49 minutes ago

Posted by pukirahe Sep 12th, 2012 at 1:46PM

Internet.
I see that Internet is a marvelous instrument
to be used universally for the betterment of our world.
We need understanding among people,
and the Internet can provide abundant news, opinions,
good writings in almost all languages for exchange
of views, vision, culture…
Perhaps, the best gift to be given to individuals and institutions
today is computers. The more the Internet will be modified,
the more it is widely use, the better the knowledge
and understanding among human beings will be improved.
I will continue to think about this matter and contribute
all my opinions for your consideration.
Internet for all people please.

Abdul-Baha says:

 “Strive day and night and do whatever is possible that perchance you may awaken the heedless, give sight to the blind, bring life to the dead, refresh the weary, and bring those in despair and darkness to light and splendor. If the hope of man be limited to the material world, what ultimate result is he working for? A man with even a little understanding must realize that he should not emulate the worm that holds to the earth in which it is finally buried. How can man be satisfied with this low degree? How can he find happiness there? My hope is that you may become free from the material world and strive to understand the meaning of the heavenly world, the world of lasting qualities, the world of truth, the world of eternal kingliness, so that your life may not be barren of results, for the life of the material man has no fruit of reality. Lasting results are produced by reflecting the heavenly existence.”

Because there are all sorts of questions up here
that cause me to present my opinions which
again provoke thinking in other minds to reach
consentment for a new world of understanding,
cooperation, and progress.
Lots of superstitions, prejudices, misunderstandings
that create disorder in our societies, but no solutions
can be found without open and frank consultations.
On this platform, I have found many friends who
are presenting urgent problems and proposals.
Wishing that, together with other Websites, it will
contribute something to the creation of mutual
understanding for unity of thoughts, of actions and of
hope. So far, I have written a few thousand articles
on my wordpress.com blog thanks to this EP section of Q&A.
Wishing long live for EP.
